Hey guys! Welcome back. We are constantly expected to know who we are, where we are going, what we want to do, and why we want to do it. There are so many questions fluttering around daily that we just can’t figure out what to do. I often find myself struggling to answer questions I know the answer to just because of the constant pressure.

So it matters where we are going. I get that. But isn’t where we have been significant too? I was thinking just today that where we come from is a major part of why we are where we are. Every choice we have ever made has led us here. Some of us can be proud, others maybe not so much. Regardless, there is no escaping the past. It’s embedded in us.

The future is coming. Quicker than you know. So sometimes it’s okay to slow down and look behind you. It’s okay to look back and see how far you have come. That may help you figure out what you want your future to look like. You can’t change your past, but you can use it to your advantage.

You can look back and move forward at the same time. I know some say you can’t, but I believe you can. Knowing where I am from has helped me make some significant life choices. I am proud of who I am even if I’m not thrilled about how my childhood turned out. I know I will have many wins and losses in the future. I am excited to see where life takes me and where I end up (hopefully in Paris). Totally kidding about Paris. Rome might be nice to visit.
